August 2016

Fresh Mediterranean Innovator Honored for Menu Excellence, Leadership

 SAN DIEGO, Calif. (August 21st, 2016) – 2016 is proving to be another award-winning year for San Diego-based Luna Grill.

In the past few months, the company has been honored in several categories:

Fast Casual Top 50 Mover and Shakers — At the National Restaurant Association (NRA) yearly show in Chicago, the company was listed along some of the most well-known names in the industry when it comes to raising the bar for Fast Casual cuisine.

California Restaurant Association San Diego Chapter Gold Medallion Award — At the annual industry gala presenting peer-to-peer awards, Luna was selected as the region’s best “Casual Dining Chain.”

San Diego Union Tribune “Best Of” Awards — In a metro market featuring a large number of popular and established eateries in both the Persian and Vegetarian cuisine categories, Luna Grill was named “best of” in each group.

 These recent accolades complement a successful run over the past few years for Luna Grill, including being named a Fast Casual Top 50 Brand of the Year in 2014 and a Top 50 Mover and Shaker in 2015.

“Obviously we’re thrilled at the recognition coming from so many parts of our industry,” said Sean Pourteymour, Luna Grill co-founder and CEO. “Our top priority has always been and will continue to be delivering fresh, authentic and delicious meals for our guests in a comfortable environment.”

Luna Grill offers authentic Mediterranean cuisine such as signature kabob plates, gourmet salads, appetizers including hummus and falafel, wraps, desserts, craft beer and wine in a contemporary setting. All foods, marinades and sauces are crafted with care daily from scratch and meals are made fresh to order and served to the table with genuine cutlery and tableware. A cross between a fast casual and full service sit-down restaurant, Luna Grill combines the best of both worlds and has created the concept of “Luxe Casual.”
